The first thing I ever heard about Inglorious Basterds back during Cannes was all about Christoph Waltz. So congratulations for a well-deserved Oscar. When all the buzz about the new Quentin movie revolves around YOU, you must be doing something pretty special.
YAY!! Best original song goes to T-Bone Burnett and Ryan Bingham for Crazy Heart. You know I'm in law school cause this is a Maggie Gyllenhaal flick and it's been down the street from my school for ages and I still haven't seen it. I can't help it, man, I saw Tender Mercies, y'know? Which I liked and enjoyed, but I'm not sure how different this one is.

WOO!! Hurt Locker won best original screenplay. I think this is a sign of Best Picture things to come...
